520    The present study examined whether Loeber's community-
       based model generalized to a juvenile correctional 
       setting. An additional extended analysis of selected risk 
       variables included age, ethnicity, home approval status, 
       history of violent offense, emotional disturbance, locus 
       of control, and level of hostility to predict and account 
       for the variance of violence. The sample consisted of 218 
       incarcerated juvenile offenders 
520    Regarding Loeber's model, a t-test for Independent Samples
       was used to examine differences in mean rates exhibited by
       Overt and Covert Offenders. While statistically 
       significant results were found, practical significance was
       not achieved. Mean rate differences were relatively small 
520    A Forward Stepwise Regression revealed statistically 
       significant findings for the variables of home approval 
       status, emotional disturbance, and hostility concerning 
       institutional violence. However, emotional disturbance was
       the only variable that meaningfully accounted for the 
       variance regarding the dependent measure of institutional 
       violence. Implications of these findings and 
       recommendations for further study and research were
